  1. Hi guys, looking for help on an old f60dab. Sorry it's a bit of a long post but here's what happened so far... I realise most users here have moved on, as I once did. I hope someone may be left who can throw some advice my way. But at the very least pls read this as a warning. After screwing up a good mates 8 year old f60dab by failed updating? I have gone through many of the old posts of days gone by to try and remember what to do. I also tried to download relevant files to assist but sadly nearly all links dead or fail to download. I keep trying. However with my mate scr
  2. As most of the posts on this forum are pre- stone age, ie 2010 would anyone know of a up to date list of models released and where they fit in terms of development. There has been a huge changes in the shift from win ce to android and possibly other formats. But equally lots of changes to pioneer units themselves. Do any even come with cd / dvd anymore. I know very few sold today even have built in navigation. What always confused me, especially now in 2023 is what series do all the 'newer' units fit, if any. (my personal answer would be c.rap ) but there may some models OK ?? S
  3. Wow, and wow again. Reading back it seems like one or two really clever developers knew their stuff discovered the holy grail and made great strides. But here in the future (2023), It's like the clever scientists back then discovered the true meaning of life, shouted out a few instructions for a while and then left the rest of the human race to fend for itself without a manual. As much as I appreciated all the hard work, commitment and support from these clever people in keeping my unit working and updated, sadly I couldnt keep up with the understanding and conflicting procedures and
  4. Hello, similar problem. Both the unit AND me. I'm guessing we're the last handful of people now using forum. So glad its still here. Thanks guys / girls? who run it. Was a god send in days gone by, hope it still is. . The unit is a mates f60 DAB. I did an update with an sdcard. problem was sdcard goes in behind the screen which flips down. Update failed and bloody screen wouldnt flip. So kept booting and (trying) to install > failed > restarted. Nightmare. Took unit out, removed screen to get card out. Now unit starts but only has splash logo. Then blank. I've tried agai
  5. I am shocked these head units are still in use AND sold in 2023. Looking at repairing a failed update for a friend who couldnt wait. So we looked at buying a replacement. EVERY unit available in 2 large halford stores was the carplay / android auto rubbish. Not a single unit, some were close to 500 quid, had built in navigation. Pioneer are taking the P. big time. They wont even need to update maps before long as so few units even have them. Bigger are the fools that plug in their phones and know no better.
  6. I just tried installing but it didnt work. All it did was open up in windows screen (test mode?) Anything else I should do? Update tried again and got menu this time. Installed and works great. Still going thru all the options n menus but wt an improvement. Luv it, thank you
  7. I've got a whole image I got from here about 2 yrs ago. It was modded and works great to this day. Still using it but must be well out of date by now. Also igo routing engine seriously p1sses me off sometimes Im just looking at upgrading but soo many choices, versions, maps mods, I dont no where to begin. But if interested and If someone can direct me to how / where I can upload Ill gladly help.
  8. For anyone else without iphone thats interested. I've since discovered its as much a problem with phone (android / Google) as it is the pioneer. Something to do with m.a.p. profile. Still at a loss to get something working tho.
  9. These new models seem great - if you have an iphone. Otherwise features aren't very much different. Plays cd, plays radio, has gps In fact I have yet to see a new pioneer model that doesnt revolve around iphone. And there must be quite a bargain to be had buying an older model that still does just what you need (without an iphone)
  10. Hi dacliber, I took the liberty of downloading your BT files to try. Thanks. But how do you install them?
  11. Evening all. Is it even possible? My box is a normal but modded F900bt updated with 3 firmware and sw900 bt. I've searched for months and see loads mentioned about ipods and iphones playing music over BT. Even a little mentioned for android. But I really would like to have my avic display any incoming sms . Or at the very least who the sender is. I'm NOT remotely interested in playing music from my phone. No really, perhaps I'm ill or summit. It nearly does something like it already when I get an sms. It pops up a black box, white txt saying new message from caller (unknown). I
  12. Anyone having issues with TMC after install ? i dont seem to have mine working now
  13. Hi Guys, thanks to all who contributed. Just lurking and found your thread so thought Id give it a go I was on ver3.0 updated a year or more ago, and wasnt looking forward to messing with it again to be honest. But downloaded file and followed instructions and jobs a good un. So many thanks. Havnt had chance to fully test yet, but one concern I have is I didnt notice comment previously about un-hiding files. I didnt do that?? Could someone please tell me which files / folders are likely to have been hidden, and i will copy over. The install took well over 20 mins so cant have missed much.
  14. Windows - On a phone ??? Whatever... One thing I do know, you need to ensure the numbers in your phone (account) are on your sim card to be able to copy phone book across.
  15. Sorry for more questions, but this is now working realy well, thanks again i was going to attempt the 'beeps' mod but ended up just deleting the four sound files. Works great and sounds a lot better One thing I'm not sure of, is it booting to primo by default or is it igo still? Apart from the extra icons it looks the same as igo. I'm also unable to select alternate voices, just the standard english lady, yet I know there are more in the MFD. I don't see any options to switch. Please advise, thanks
  16. Hello mate, thank you for uploading your 'MFD' file. My unit has been modded a while back, and has been freezing and corrupted. So trying to undo stuff or update again from 3 was looking to be a nightmare. It took nearly two days to download at 30k on rapidshare but has now replaced mine and is working much better already. What Id like to ask you if you remember is what mods you have/had when you uploaded? Do you recommend any further mods / tweaks. And I can't believe someone would actually put up with the beeps and pops every button press But otherwise its a great improvement already.
  17. Thanks good advice, but wont that restore all the nag screens etc.as well? Of course, once I replace with your mod MFD then they will be gone. Reading your notes again, I'm concerned about the 'sound' issue. Has this been resolved yet.? Imagine it's a real pain. Edit: sorry to have to ask, would swapping MFD need to be done in test mode or can it be done through explorer cheers
  18. Hi they are working for me. But for a couple of sound files are they supposed to be SOo BIG ?
  19. Hello, great to see you stick with your mod. I wonder if I may ask a couple of noob questions. I updated mine to 3 about a year+ ago, but it has become corrupted and laggy. I dont know what is the matter so I want to do a complete fresh update. I have the F900bt (with black knob) so regardless what is on it now I would like to use your your mod since I like the look of primo and agree that I prefer smartzoom, it is essential near busy junctions (and I don't want to see the sky). I do like chrome better though. It is a long time since I flashed mine so a little confusing to see so many optio
  20. Well said mate... and very kind to try and post files. I've a few issues with my f900 unit but it is working, if a bit buggy, outdated and slow. The problem is so many fixes and mods available now, new & old, its difficult to know where to start, and I think people are just having a stab at different fixes. I only just managed to register last week but lurching and leeching for couple of years and though least I could do is upload what I have. Because I tinkered a few times with flashing my phone I learnt very quickly to take time to back up and copy everything. So I have all my old bac
  21. Hi like many here again I too have forgotten how to do most of these mods, but I last did an update before unit fitted about 18 months ok. NO faults as such but my unit has become VERY slow and lags. Takes a few minutes to boot. Sometimes it freezes and takes a few minutes for any button press to catch up. Then it goes into a route direction mode by itself. I've deleted all logs I can find and tried a reset but hasn't helped. Sometimes it takes forever to start up. No boot loops or anything but it seems the cpu is on 1/4 speed. ??? I've got into explorer mode and realised I have more maps
  22. These are for the f700bt This is the link for the F900bt http://www.pioneer.eu/uk/support/software/AVIC-F900BT/index.html But is there any modded or hacked versions of these updates with out the nag screens etc. For UK still
  23. Hi guys, followed this thread about 2 years ago when I first had my f900bt and successfully updated my unit. It was a great how to, and has served me well. So thanks to the OP for explaining and packaging everything needed back then. But my unit has become laggy and corrupted and everything now seems outdated. I think it needs a refresh. Its a UK f900bt updated only with original info and files from this thread. But although I still see lots of mods and 'updates' on elsewhere in different threads and posts for different regions I'm more confused to what is an update now in this thread o
  24. I have a f900bt 'myflash disk ' files I could upload for you somewhere if needed still. Approx 1.5gb unzipped.
  25. Hi finally been able to log in woohoo. FANTASTIC forum thanks to all. (has kept me entertained many an evening) Reason Im doing so now is to ask about UK maps and if possible ask that somebody who manages the forum ?? could you please in some way encourage everybody who posts something or a link to say for what country / region they're for. I'm just trying to get my head around doing all this updating again as my unit is getting tired and laggy. But its doing my head in reading through thread after thread to find its all about a fix / patch / map etc that's only good for a certain area (
